This week’s giveaway from Areaware will earn your home bar some major cred.
Sophisticated in its rustic simplicity, this magnetized bottle opener is indispensible. It is such a simple tool with such great and well thought-out utility. A single bent nail bent nail functions as a lever to pry off a bottle cap, and a magnet catches it. An additional magnet adheres the bottle opener to the refrigerator or other magnetic surfaces when not in use. To sum it up: one magnet catches the bottle cap; the other allows the bottle opener to be kept on the fridge.
The giveaway comes from Areaware, a New York City based producer of everyday objects that are both functional and unusual. Areaware is a strong voice for American design, with an eye out for creating thoughtful products that inspire an emotional response and exploring design languages as a means of creating new syncretic forms. The bottle opener itself was designed by Brendan Ravenhill, an industrial designer in love with the functional beauty of working tools and wooden boats.
